At the Capitol, the state Assembly votes Thursday on a fast-tracked redistricting bill.
The measure to adopt Iowa style redistricting was announced Tuesday by Republicans. Representative Travis Tranel of Cuba City said he hoped Democrats who have called for fair maps and that the Iowa model is the way to go, will support the bill and that Democratic Governor Tony Evers will sign it.
That’s unlikely. Minority Leader Greta Nuebauer said Republicans – and Speaker Robin Vos – would retain redistricting authority under a bill. Evers has stated his disapproval of the bill, calling it “bogus.”
